The Bible is a book of stories par excellence and is completely realistic about human nature. Hero, Lover, Daughter, Queen retells ten timeless biblical stories of archetypal figures, enabling readers to see themselves and help them make sense of their lives, including:

· Solomon – how to create your legacy;
· The lover in the Song of Songs - what makes you beautiful?
· Goliath – what makes you strong?
· The paralytic man – finding true friendship;
· Jezebel – what it’s like to be thrown to the dogs;
· Paul – understanding human sexuality and more.

In their stories we are offered a mirror. By gazing into it and learning from their experiences we are offered a way forward in our own lives. These characters were real people who, like us, grappled with the reality of the human condition. Even when they ‘called on the Lord’ and reached beyond themselves for understanding, they did so from within the messy confines of lives like ours. For that reason we can turn to them and find genuine insights and wisdom that and can help us in our own times.
